After nearly fifty years as an indentured genie, Desiree escaped the magical world . . . for a few weeks.Now she's the leader of the Wish Makers and it's been anything but a peaceful transition.The cross-country move was meant to be a fresh start for Robin Westmore. But on the first day at his new high school, Robin ends up face-to-face with the school's biggest bully. The exact wrong place at the exact wrong moment and right back into his old role of victim.Hopeless, Robin begs for it all to stop. It's childish, wishing on a dandelion, but he can't take it anymore and needs a way out.Distracted by her duties, Desiree passes Robin off to a new, inexperienced genie who takes things from bad to so very much worse.What Readers Are Saying"Fantasy at its best!""Not only do we get to follow along on Mandy's adventure with Lexi, we also get to learn bits about Desiree - the wish mistress who I absolutely fell in love with.""Desiree is this quirky, hippy chic genie. She lives in the present with her mind in the past. She marches to her own rhythm, her own way of thinking. Desiree doesn't really fit in, but she has a uniqueness about her that defies rigidity. And she's ever-evolving, always learning something else. It might take her moment to find the lesson, but she'll get there. Eventually.""Desiree even has her own back story that we slowly get to peel away as the story progresses.""These books are wonderful. They take you into a world where you find you want to live."The Wish Makers SeriesSticks and Stones, Book 1Break My Bones, Book 2Never Hurt Me, Book 3Had a Great Fall, Book 4Back Together Again, Book 5

About the Author

Shawn McGuire is the author of young adult novels that blend contemporary settings and issues with a touch of fantasy and magic. She started writing after seeing the first Star Wars movie (that's episode IV) as a kid. She couldn't wait for the next movie to come out so wrote her own episodes. Sadly, those notebooks are long lost, but her desire to write is as strong now as it was then.

Her books deal with harder topics (dating violence, death of a sibling, divorce, substance abuse, runaways, bullying, teen suicide, etc.) because she believes it is important to talk about these things. Those kinds of topics can be hard to handle and a bit overwhelming, so she infuses a bit of humor in her work as well because she also believes that a sense of humor can help you get through just about anything.

Shawn lives in Colorado with her family where she loves to read, cook and bake, craft, decorate her house, and spend time hiking and camping in the spectacular Rocky Mountains.
